    I don't know what your ad looks like but if you don't have both a photo and a video you should add each. I am amazed at the people who list a horse for 10K and don't have an ad! That is a lot of...

    I think most 17 hand horses can carry just about anyone that can manage to get on a horse. I think that it is the strenuousness of the work that becomes an issue. So, if you have a heavier rider on...

    This is excellent advice. I would only add that there is no need "to make a career" out of riding. You can live and work and enjoy your son on no one's schedule but your own. There is no end to the...
